Octagon Layout Calculator
by Joe Barta - jbarta@htmliseasy.com

WHAT IS IT?
It's a carpenter's aid for laying out a perfect octagon. Seeing as it's tolerance is to the nearest 1/16", it's no good for small projects such as jewlery boxes. I had in mind gazebos when I wrote it.

It's written in HTML and Javascript. Load the page in any modern web browser and you're good to go. I also compiled it into a HTMLHelp file that runs by itself outside of any browser (although to use the HTMLhelp version you must have Internet Explorer v4 or greater on your system).

HOW ACCURATE IS IT?
Well, like I said above, results are rounded to the nearest 1/16". Plenty accurate for framing purposes.

IS IT FREE?
Yes.

DOES IT HAVE A WEBSITE?
Yes: http://www.htmliseasy.com/octagon_layout/index.html
